of weeks. and it became evident to me in early 2010 from about a year after obama took office. three things happen. the first was from the united states supreme court. i think no person in the united states i can think of has benefited more from the supreme court of karl rove. two decisions. one in 2000 obviously with bush v. gore put his candidate in the white house and two, in 2010, citizens united decision. that opened the floodgates for contribution -- unlimited contributions. in many cases from secret sources is no transparency with the weather, that is just unprecedented in history. the second thing that happened with michael still running the applicant party instead of running it in to ditch and he couldn't raise the time and it came to his favor early in 2010. you may recall there was a revelation in los angeles that the republican national committee has been entertaining at at a lesbian bondage themed strip club. this did not work well, so they could not raise a dime. this gave for his opening. so he had a luncheon at his house in the weaver terrace. it was cohosted by a lsp

years. barack obama, acorn's lawyer, is now the president of the united states. how interested he think he is in making sure that his friends don't resort to old bat habits and old patterns of behavior? apparently not at all if you judge by the actions of the air called the justice department's. in conclusion, i don't want to go through 2010. we live in perilous times, both in foreign policy and domestic. the last thing this country needs is another dispute about who won the 2012 election. the last thing we need is for this country to be driven a par with allegations of by the corruption or incompetence in which we don't know who the present electives for weeks and when the president is sworn in, half the country is angry and bitter and perhaps is not even see that person as a legitimate. we can clean up the selection process, even starting now just by observing what goes on in the election, making sure election officials are doing their job, by making sure they know someone is watching for voter fraud. activist groups. they're recruiting a to a billion people to observe the election pr

thought barack obama would be the standard in 2008. so for years i was the woman could be somebody. we're not even thinking. that's one thing i would say. second thing i would say is when you asked the question earlier, i had a hard time thinking of a name because it strikes me that we have been something of a gap. we are seeing women who are part of second wave feminism, women who try to make a statement of reaching that point in their career when they are retiring, the point where they are beyond running perhaps although it's not john mccain. so that is something we talk about in the book, h. and how women age faster than none politically age. but there seems to be a gap between that generation and a new group that is coming up. so it is really hard to point to somebody in the pipeline. but the person i would point to is nikki bailey. i think that she has managed some thing in south carolina very well and, you know, she has the advantage of the city, bringing diversity to the republican party. i think given that one argument that the republican party needs diversity. >> we all ki

central piece of legislation for the evaluation of president obama's presidency. and undoubtly it marks triumph of liberalism. alone it would qualify obama's face for the mount rushmore. they had been lusting over national health care for 100 years since ted i arey roosevelt called for certainly since the 1944 state of the union address that proclaimed the second bill of rights. it was under fdr. for generations liberals have sought this holly grail. and only obama was able to find it to deliver it. to create the first comprehensive national health care plan not targeted just at the poor or the sick or the old, but at everyone. 100% solution. or at least in theory a 100% solution. now in this sense, of course, obamacare is the latest tryoff of tight element rights. one of the new deals signal contribution to liberalism as we know it today. entitlement rights mean -- economic rights like the rights to health care or to a job or to a vacation from the job. or to security in old age. all of those kinds of socioeconomic rights that have transformed and recentered our politicking. together t

obama stimulus and everybody hates the obama stimulus. obama he did too. a year after it passed a percentage of americans who believe the stimulus created jobs was lower than the percentage of americans who believe elvis was alive. at one point i told the story how obama told his cabinet that the stimulus was the only thing less popular than he was. when you put the words change and obama this close together you are going to get yelled at. the new -- "the new new deal," right wingers the text of the old new deal and left wingers don't think this spineless sellout of a president is fit to share a book jacket with the new deal. i had a feeling some readers wouldn't get past the first four words. and i was right. a few weeks ago i got a google alert that "the new new deal" was in the new republic. i had written a lot for that magazine. i have a lot of friends there. i clicked on the link and it is the blog coast by a 23-year-old researcher who announced right away he couldn't even make it to the first page. she couldn't get past the first four words. but not these four first words. i

president obama, and i do think she will leave probably in obama's third year. she is 79. she is often said she wants to search use 82 because that's when louis brandeis, her idol, served until. not funny, that's true. and some people ask why didn't she quit earlier to make sure that obama bashing she's a human being. and she's a widow. and she loves what she does and she's good at it. she's got the brains and the health did it. she's particularly and members of for new college, elena kagan. and her choice is to be the senior liberal on the supreme court, or go sit by herself in her apartment near watergate. what would you do? [laughter] so i think she's going to stay. now, if obama is reelected, and it's looking that way, i don't think, i don't, i was not pandering. just making another one of my actual predictions. [laughter] -- excellent predictions. i don't think any of the conservatives will leave voluntarily. but it started to be a pretty old court. justice kennedy and scalia are both 76. you know, do the math. you don't always get a choice of when you leave, but i think if romney

the evaluation of obama's presidency. and undoubtedly it marks a triumph of liberalism, alone it would qualify obama's face for the liberal mount rushmore. liberals had been lusting after national health care for 100 years since teddy roosevelt and the progressive party platform of 1912 called for it. the second bill of rights. so for generations liberals have sought to this holy grail, and on the obama was able to find it, to deliver, to create the first comprehensive national health care plan not tarry just at the poor or the sec or the old but everyone, the 100% solution or at least in theory a 100% solution. now, in this sense, of course, obamacare is the latest triumph of entitlement rights. one of the new deal signal contributions to liberalism as we know it today. entitlement rights means socioeconomic rates, as they are sometimes called, like the right to health care or to a job or to a vacation from the job or to security in old age. all those kinds of socio-economic writes that demand programs that have transformed and three center our politics. together these implied a new v

involved with the middle east is the issue of two-state solution. for the last 20 years we hear about two-state solution. you must finish the conflict, the resolution will be a palestinian state. and president obama adopted this approach and she's calling upon us, the israelis to build a palestinian state and go back to 1967 lines. and in my book, a new paradigm. enough with a two-state solution. it doesn't work. we have tried for the last 20 years. we signed the accord and we haven't received any peace. we tried to do it at this engagement from gaza. it didn't help us as well. i think it should be a three state solution and not a two-state solution. and when i speak about three state solution, i speak about jordan and egypt and israel. i do not believe it should be a palestinian state, because look at what's happening today in gaza it's becoming a link of iran. a link of islamic radical forces come and you have to ask yourself do we want to see the same happening in jerusalem? i do not. and in my book i have a lot of criticism regarding that administration, i call it administration, but

written about this year is how the obama campaign is adopting these experimental methods to measure the effect of their mail and online ads and tv ads. it's more complicated and more expensive but it's a way of trying to break out of the line solely on the polls and focus groups that try to ask voters to imagine in this sort of artificial setting what would change their mind, and instead introduce them to information in the real world to believe they are basically being examined and see if it actually does change their mind. so that is a one next way of using these experimental techniques to see what really does move the voters and get out of the sort of the artificial setting of the focus groups alone. >> host: on that note with the obama campaign, since they have had four years ago time to study and now they have for years later, is there any innovative technique they're using now, any more that you can't -- >> guest: the programs are really the thing and they have been used in small narrow ways by some institutions, the afl-cio, emily's list over the years in certain states in the ob
